The project is to be submitted for public consultation. Ministry assumes that it will be approved in first quarter of 2021. It will be accompanied with hydrogen law which is to support new installations, f.e. hydrolizers. Poland plans to have at least 2 GW of hydrolizers until 2030.

Polish ambassador hits German foundation

Polish Ambassador in Germany Jacek Przyłębski criticized Nord Stream 2 project foundation called Stiftung Klimaschutz which was created by Mecklemburg-Vorpommern land in cooperation with Russian Gazprom.

According to Polish diplomat this foundation hits European solidarity and Nord Stream 2 project is a threat to whole Europe as it might serve Russia as a tool of coercion in gas market.

Nord Stream 2 foundation could be used to save this project from U.S. sanctions as they can not target any state entity in European Union and Stiftung Klimaschutz is a land-controlled entity formally.
